And now for the fish…
Inshore fishing is amazing year-round, so just choose your favorite month and you’re good to go. However, there are some fish considered to be more prominent during certain times of the year. Here are just a few that you can expect to catch.
Speckled Trout: Most prominent from April to November, the average size is one pound and a maximum size of 16 pounds. They are a schooling species, so once you find one, you’ll probably find a ton more!
Flounder: Most prominent from March to November, the average size is anywhere from 9 to 23 inches but can grow as large as 37 inches.
Redfish or Red Drum: Prominent year-round, sizes range anywhere from 12 pounds to a whopping 45 pounds!
Sheepshead: Prominent year-round, average size is three to four pounds maxing out at 15 pounds. They like to steal bait, so make sure to use a small hook.
Tripletail: Prominent year-round, these fish are often found suspended under buoys, channel markers, and other floating objects.
